Swiss train tickets without passes must easily be the most expensive in the world, if you are just planning a few days, why not hire a car ?
My TGV/air ticket from Switzerland to Australia (180 eur AirAsia including train to paris) cost less than a few days train travel in Switzerland
TGV Basel - Paris 20 EUR
PARIS - Kuala Lumpur 99 EUR
KL - Darwin via Bali 60 EUR
(All booked well in advance and INCLUDING all taxes, i must add)
3 moderate return journeys in Switzerland - well over 200 EUR with or without rail pass
Swiss rail passes/Half Tax Cards are only worthwhile if you intend to use them at least 6-7 times, even then if you look at the total cost, it is a bit of a shocker.
